I dropped mine quite a few times on pavement and haven't seen a scratch at all. Funny thing though, my sister's bf's storm was dropped and the entire glass screen cracked. Still quite a few months before Storm 2 is released but I'm pretty confident my current Storm can weather my abuse until Storm 2 is out.
Your welcome, glad I could offer something of interest. I am the type of user who keeps looking for the next best thing from cases to screen protectors. Speaking of cases I have several that I no longer use on my storm, practically like new condition. I'll post them in the for sale section.
